How to maintain original broadband speed

Your internet speed provided by a USB Broadband service can be seriously hampered by a number of factors. These can be adjusted with some basic knowledge. For example one thing you can do is check your RAM capacity. If it is above at least 256 mega-bytes, you can monitor and adjust the buffering in the computer memory. This gives your computer the ability to combat USB modem problems in a more effective way so as to increase your net speed.

It is also very important to use the specific kind of broadband device to be used – which can be ascertained by going to the USB ADSL option and then to the power tab. Thereafter, go to the tab of resources to make a note of the computer’s IRQ. It is important to make sure the IRQs of the modem and the noted IRQ is the same to ensure proper, fast working of the broadband.

Post this, the system file of your computer has to be managed so as to be expanded. After this the 386enh line has to be found. Once this is done, in a new line, you have to type IrqX=4096, the X here corresponds to the IRQ number you found earlier. Save this from the menu option.

Once this is done, the last precautionary measure you need to take is to always make sure your broadband is checked.
